This is a most valuable and instructive book for the aspirants, particularly for the devotees of Lord Siva. It is full of instructions on practical Sadhana for attainting Siva-Tattva or God-realization. The secrets of Siva Tandava, Sakti-Yoga, etc. are very nicely presented. The translation of the Saiva Upanishads is a beautiful addition. The lives of Siva Acharaya, the Bhaktas and the Nayanars are inspiring and soul-stirring. A Study of their lives will make one's life sublime and holy.
Up to this time, there has been no such presentation on this subject. The philosophical portion is highly illuminating and helpful to the readers. The book contains the essence of all Saiva Puranas. It is written in a very lucid and clear style.
